favorite friday: number three fits my cupcakes perfectly

Five Reasons Why Cupcakes Are More Than Just a Trend: Bobbie Lloyd

1. "Have you ever looked at a child's face when they experience that first sweet bite of a cupcake? Pure bliss."
2. "Cupcakes allow one to experience a small sweet pleasure (no major dessert commitment) that can transport you to another place for a moment."
3. "Cupcakes are just plain fun. They allow us to be silly for a moment and not take life so seriously."
4. "Cupcakes are easy to make. Anyone can become a cupcake 'expert' with a little practice and a lot of eating. You can seriously dress them up for a special occasion or keep it plain and simple."
5. "Cupcakes appeal to everyone. They are cross-generational and non-demographic. Mom, dad, grandma, grandpa and the kids, no matter what country they are from, can enjoy cupcakes."

are you ready for some football?

i love football. tailgating, wearing my team shirts (Richmond Spiders, Colts, Hokies), getting to go to a game, watching one on tv with some nachos and beer. so, of course, i had to kickoff the season with football themed cupcakes.

because the hokies had a big game and a good amount of my friends are hokies, they were the  "team" on the cupcake field.

here is a shot of the whole field

a close up of the Virginia Tech logo

this is the only picture of the field goal... i made one for both sides of the field but it was beyond humid outside and they didn't make it. i will use a completely different technique next time.

and then i always take some shots from weird angles and find one i think looks interesting

the hokies didn't win but the cupcakes were a hit!
